When he was asked to step out from behind the microphone and cover a few shifts in front of the camera at Kingston’s local CBC affiliate, CKWS TV, he jumped at the chance.
Jay was hooked from the first time he held the “weather clicker”! He moved to Peterborough soon after to work as a full-time weather specialist for CHEX Television, and eventually enrolled in Mississippi State University’s renowned Operational Meteorology department.
